locked PC Crash


TomK
 

I also run y PC 24/7 running 16TB of backups across 10 drives. 

Also running graphics, photoshop, video processing, et al.

Despite that Herculean load at 90% temp max on CPU, it runs fine for months on end.

However, only when I run WSJT, JTAlert, GridTracker, and AC Log during my 16/7 AR monitoring, do I have memory issues.

Each of those AR apps seem to run aground with what appears to be memory leaks after roughly 16-24 hours.

There are other sources of crashes too. Such as UDP messaging storms that trigger interrupt thrashing.

Systems with lighter loads would probably run longer before resources are totally consumed.

I just treat it as par for the course.

Interestingly, simply closing and re-opening said AR apps also cures the problem with a full reboot.

That seems to underscore a resource issue when pushing any of those apps beyond 16 hours.

Not a problem. Just a minor annoyance.

Their value far outweighs a few app restarts and a rarer PC reboot.

Hi Bill - I think so too.  Maybe it's a memory leak issue that degrades system performance over time.  You have a lot going on within your PC 24X7. Why don't you just re-boot a couple times a week - that likely would solve your issue.

Hello Craig-
No SAVE in WSJT-X.
Thanks for the suggestion, however.
This is some kind of memory consumption problem I believe.
